Geyserville Grapevine - deTraci Regula - March 2017


Geyserville Grapevine - deTraci Regula - March 2017

Is it just my imagination or has it been a bit moist lately? The bottom of our alpaca paddock is no affectionately called “Lake Oasis” and at one point looked deep enough to kayak across. We are becoming used to the squishy sound as we walk across our muddy lawn. But we are glad to feel those empty aquifers filling up and our Great Tree at Isis Oasis Sanctuary seems to be emitting a great soft sigh of relief. In the sky, rainbows have been frequent, seeming to end in the heart of Geyserville. And at least for the moment something else is ended - namely, the drought.

St Patrick’s Festivities

The rich coat of green that the rain has brought is ideal for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities this month, including the local fundraiser “Jiggs and Maggie Benefit for Education” at the Geyserville Odd Fellows club on Saturday, March 21st at the historic Geyserville Odd Fellows Hall. Dino Bugica of Diavola’s will be applying his renowned chefly skills to something a little less Italian - corned beef and cabbage with all the fixings. Tickets are just $30 and it promises to be a fun evening in the heart of “downtown” Geyserville. 

Jeff Tobes 13th Annual 20 Mile History Walk Goes Through Geyserville On Saturday, April 1st, expect to see numerous walkers passing through Geyserville. It’s the annual History Walk commemorating teacher Jeff Tobes, who began the tradition many years ago by taking his middle school students on walks through the local area. The walk will begin at 6am at Big John’s Market in Healdsburg and will last all day as the group passes through Geyserville on the way to Asti and finally, to Cloverdale. Walkers are treated to historic information about the places that  they are walking through. We’ve invited them to walk through Isis Oasis Sanctuary on the way and will be sharing a bit of information about John Bosch, the decades this land spent as a Baha’i center, our nearly 40 years as Isis Oasis, and a bit about our 400-year old Great Tree. Contact Ray at 707 535 6476 for more information on this fun walk. You can register and pay at The fee includes breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a t-shirt, and all proceeds go to the Jeff Tobes History Day Fund. They also are looking for support vehicle drivers and other volunteers.
